    Regular Coffee by Carton Brewing in NJ was pretty awesome

    I will be looking for at least a case of this next year after buying over a case in sixers this year.

    Anyone ever try just adding a small shot of espresso to an off-the-shelf stout?

    Without a doubt, Penultimate Push (Cubano Espresso Marshal Zhukov).

    Recently got to try a Hopworks Survival Stout, that was very good. No idea what distribution looks like for that brewery though.

    I just had Peche Mortel for the first time the other day. It lived up to the hype/expectations.

    BREWTUS by Monocacy in Maryland. Robust is an understatement. I wish I could find more on the shelves.

    Bean Flicker Blonde from Odd Side Ales. I was really impressed with how well balanced and not over powering the coffee in it was.

    I did this recently with the SN Beer Camp Double Latte. Put about 3/4 of a shot of espresso into it and it was fantastic.

    The best one I've had lately- Espresso yeti. I love that this one is pretty accessible too if you live near the west coast anyway. haha

    Did a four way tasting of Modern Times Black House, Peche Mortel, Highland Black Java Stout, and Oddsides Chocolade Koffie Stout about a week ago and I gave the edge to Black House.

    It's still Peche Mortel. I had a 3 year old bottle the other night and it was STILL delicious.
